Rise of the Betrayer is a Metroidvania platform precision game. You play as a human who has appears to have angered the gods, and so now their sole purpose is to punish you for the crimes that you have committed against them. The game is an Action-Adventure but does have Metroidvania tendencies as well as platform precision. I will admit the game is really hard and so if you enjoy challenging games this is going to be the game for you. I can see this ending up as a speed-running game.

There were some things that I would like to mention that I felt should be added. I would love if there was an options menu added to the game to be able to make some changes to the game. Some of the effects in the game could be a potential bother for some. Like the opening sequence to the game made my eyes and head hurt. Also, having the ability to adjust sounds and resolution would be great as well.

The controller controls handle pretty well. I will admit the crafting in the game is a little confusing, but once you get used to it, it because very easy. Also, I would have liked a mention of breaking objects to gain materials. I know some would say, but you should know that and you're right I should, but it would be nice to have a small reminder maybe when you pick up the weapon it should tell you to destroy things for materials.

Other than that I enjoyed the game even though it was incredibly difficult which is what I think the developers are going for and this is a different take on the platform precision genre and I liked that as well.
